No international shipments.....Sorry

  • No shipment to APO addresses

  • For shipment to Hawaii and Alaska, it may take a while but you are used to that.  We'll get it there ASAP.
  • Shipment to a PO Box will take longer than shipment to a street address.  
  • Shipping is the hardest part of this business to get right, especially for small orders. Rates change without notice and balancing delivery time and cost is tricky.  Significant shipping overpayment will be refunded. 
  • Since most of these products must be shipped by ground, if you are on the East side of the Mississippi you might consider ordering directly from Woodcraft or Buffalo Woodturning Products. West Virginia and New York are a lot closer to you than Oregon. For our friends in Canada, Artistic Tool and Wood Supply in Toronto carry the Doctor's Woodshop products and Welbeck Sawmill, Ltd. in Durham, ON has PENS PLUS.  Some of the Doctor's Woodshop products can also be found on through secondary sellers.

A word about the Prop 65 warnings: The State of California has chosen to require warnings labels on products containing chemicals linked in any way to cancer and reproductive disorders. The labels are included here and on the products to comply with that regulation.

Thanks for your interest in the Doctor's Woodshop products.

I'm often asked why I make two paste waxes that are identical except for the wax used. Microcrystal waxes are a family of synthetic waxes that I think are more water and fingerprint resistant. This paste wax uses the same synthetic wax, Cosmolloid 80H, as found in the furniture conservator’s choice, Renaissance®, without the solvent content.

A short lesson in the physics of light transmission. Water frozen with a large amount of dissolved gas in it (like water straight out of the tap) is cloudy. The water molecules aren’t stacked perfectly and light is dispersed as it goes through the ice making cloudy ice. Remove the gas, and you get clear ice. Carnauba wax is a natural product so all the molecules are not identical. The solid wax disperses light due to disorder in the wax structure. The microcrystal wax molecules are identical, so the wax surface transmits light with less dispersion. The result is a brilliant surface finish.

Relying on the solvating properties of walnut oil, the microcrystal wax provides a good, brilliantly translucent wax finish without the traditional chemical solvents. As with Doctor’s Woodshop Walnut Oil Paste Wax, this is an excellent product to use alone or with the Doctor’s Woodshop High Build Friction Polish. I recommend this wax for use with PENS PLUS (DOC-108), the microcystal wax friction polish, as an additional topcoat or to restore a worn surface.
